I was given a free ticket into this from the hotel I was staying at in Nuremberg. I was glad I took the time to visit the Museum. It certainly challenges your views on art, but only in a good away. The building itself is an interesting structure, especially as it is within the old walls of the city. Full... More

This modern gallery is set amongst the old walls of Nuremberg and was a stand out in my visit. The buildings architecture is a visit in itself. Full of great contemporary art. Also free entry for art/design students alike.

Nice to have such museum but weak collection for a city as Nürnberg. I like more the bookshop then the gallery. Huge building for a little art. But need to see anyway for Gerhard Richter.

This museum will not only fascinate you with its art but also with its architecture. There was quite some controversy when this ultra-modern building was incorporated into what is essentially Nuremberg's "old town", but the architecture and interior design have a way of drawing one in. When we visited, there was a special exhibition by ceramic artist Patricia Urquiola that... More

Eclectic and welcoming, this museum did impress. The building architecture is stunning. The works on display during our visit was unique and at times quite inspiring. The Sunday entrance of only 1 euro was very nice. The museum is small, so you can make it through in a couple of hours and its gift shop and book store is a... More

Amazing modern art museum with stunning pieces, simply a must see. We were the only people there except the staff which seemed somewhat strange, but what can I say? it was fantastic, reminded me a little of the one in Barcelona.

This is a small but impressive new museum and worth a visit, but on the whole, the collection is not as impressive as the architecture and the design department in particular is disappointing. There are a few highlights nonetheless (liked Ai Wei Wei's Tea Cube!!) and a good bookshop next door. There is a sort of spiral staircase that looks... More

Ultra modern building nestled between 18th century buildings, and the contrast of buildings is (to me) part of the experience. And a tour of this museum DOES feel like an experience! Though the contemporary art was not my husband's favorite, he was just fascinated taking photos of the interior architecture of the building.

The Neues Museum bills itself as a museum of modern art and design — for some reason "design" appears in English — and having seen some great German and Austrian design museums, I was looking forward to this new museum, whose building is very impressive. Unfortunately, it has enormous amounts of wasted space — the blank walls throughout much of the... More

We like the entrance coming from a small square. NIce people at the reception. The interior is really interesting and unexpected. Exhibition maybe a bit unequal but for sure enough thrilling and interesting.
